Krisnan Inu has accepted an early guilty plea and will be suspended for at least five games after his spear tackle on Greg Inglis over the weekend.
Inu received a grade four dangerous throw charge.
If the Bulldogs choose to contests the decision and lose, Inu could face up to seven weeks on the sidelines.
The suspension comes at a difficult time for the Bulldogs. Only winning 1 game out of their first 4, they sit in 10th place and take on third placed Manly this Friday night at 7:35pm (AEST).
